End of School Activities

There's always so much going on at the end of the school year. The beginning of May started with the Cougar Walk. It was a HOT day! We went to watch Sadie but had to leave before it was over and then came in the afternoon to watch Cambree and help mark off laps.
That evening, they had a celebration with food trucks, bounce houses, hair color, face paint, auction baskets, and duct taping the principal to the school wall. He's a good sport!
Of course the only food truck the kids liked anything at was the hot dog one.
The 5th grade does the Wax Museum every year so Cambree got to do it this year. She wanted to be Eleanor Roosevelt. She liked her mostly because she was tall. Almost 6 feet! Back then, that's pretty dang tall! Cambree borrowed some clothes from my mom and I figured out how to roll her hair up and she was good-to-go! She was very good at holding really still until you pushed her "button" and she came to life and told some fun facts.
They also had to draw portraits of their person. They were taught how to draw them. Cambree did a great job! She was very proud of it and has sparked a love for drawing.
Brinley had her final choir concert. She was going to be singing a solo part for some of it. I was so nervous for her but got there early to get a front row seat!
I absolutely LOVE the song she got to sing the solo part in. It was Joyful, Joyful from Sister Act. So fun! She did really great! She even added a few movements and was really into it.
They also sang a really long Disney Medley at the end. It was a fun night!
Her principal is photobombing us. ;)
I also helped at Field Day for Cambree's grade. Our station was pretty much just an obstacle course so we just had to show them how to do it and make sure they were doing it right.

Cambree is balancing an egg on a spoon for the first part.
Sadie had a little walking field trip to a nearby park. I didn't go so I stole this from her teacher's Instagram.
I think Sadie told me they were making marble tracks out of paper??
These 3 were really excited to ride their bikes on the last day of school. They never ride them because Aiden is in Kindergarten and he can't ride a bike home from school.
Sadie's teacher has been really good about taking pictures and posting them so of course, I will steal them! She had been such a great teacher for her.
It's so crazy that school is out! What to do now???

Preschool Pirate Day

I was happy I got to come to Pirate Day! I tried to dress up a little but I don't have much. Easton was sad that he didn't have a pirate costume either but Mrs. Bradshaw had eye patches and bandanas so they all looked the part.
To get to the treasure, they found words with the first letter of the alphabet going in order. We walked all over the neighborhood. The kids were super excited to find the letters and we had to hold back some of the faster kids so the slower kids could get a chance.

Easton found one!
We found the buried treasure!! The kids had to dig it up. It was quite exciting because the sprinklers were on in the yard next to the sandbox so it was an adventure trying to avoid them!

After that, we headed to our ship! Kerry must have some great neighbors to let us dig in their sandbox and play on their awesome ship they built.
Easton looked like a stud. He OWNED that ship!
Raising the sails!
There were lots of fun things to play on and explore. Preschool ended way to quickly!

Sadie's Field Trip to the Zoo

I've been to Cambree and Brinley's zoo field trip and I'm planning on going to all my kids' 1st Grade Field Trip. It's fun and pretty low-key. I like to try and go to all the field trips if I can. I had a small group of 3 cute girls to keep track of. Their teacher gave us a small scavenger hunt list and we needed to take pictures of the animals. First up, was the giraffe!
Then the zebras
Getting a picture of the lion drinking fountain is a must!
The zoo theme was Bugzilla so there were giant bugs all over the zoo. Some of them moved and made sounds.
Elephants were on the list!
Everyone had to have a turn on the elephant trunk.
The bear was having fun in the water!

The crocodile was just sitting there with a smile. He didn't move.
While I was away, my kids were at coop. Tawnie had quite the crew! I appreciate her watching my kids for me!
